Automne

Language: French

Profitons bien des jours d'automne
Où, dans les cieux,
Semble errer la langueur
Plaintive des adieux...
Profitons bien des jours d'automne.

Je me souviens de tendres choses
Que se racontaient les amants;
Ils faisaient d'éternels serments...
Tout bas...
Quand fleurissaient les roses!

Profitons bien des jours d'automne
Ou, dans le cieux,
Semble errer la langueur
Plaintive des adieux...
Profitons bien des jours d'automne.

Hélas!  Le destin qui nous pouse
Est quelquefois si rigoureux!..
Reviendrez vous, beaux amoureux,
Quand reviendra la saison douce?..

Profitons bien des jours d'automne!..

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors.

Autumn

Language: English

Let us profit from the days of autumn
Where in the heavens,
There seems to languor
Plaintive goodbyes...
Let us profit from the days of autumn

I remember the tender things
That the lovers told each other;
They made eternal vows...
All below...
When flowered with roses!

Let us profit from the days of autumn
Where in the heavens,
There seems to languor
Plaintive goodbyes...
Let us profit from the days of autumn

Alas!  The destiny which pushes us,
Is sometimes so rigorous!..
Return handsome lovers,
When will the sweet season return?..

Let us profit from the days of autumn!...
